      CO showed J T and lost (-$0.27 net)
      Hero mucked K T and won $0.58 ($0.31 net)

      Villain is unknown.

      I have a few areas I want to ask if I played correctly.

      PF: This is a hand I will steal w. But when CO calls and only has 20bbs, I'm not sure what to do. I face this a lot of times in Speed when players can just buy in for 20bbs and they limp alot.

      I don't like raising as well cause I can't make a bluff c-bet. I do not have initiative and I might get raised by players behind. Should I just fold it?

      Flop: I bet TP for value after both checked

      Turn: When he min-bets, it feels like e 7 helped him. Either gave him a draw or a big hand. I think I can only get 1 more street of value but I also think raising might be a little too thin here. Should I raise to around $0.30 and then go for free showdown?

      River: As played, I just call his min-bet as I see no point in raising.

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: I definitely think that limping is a mistake here with position.

      Given his smaller stack size simply make it 3x and if we get called villain will have 17 BB in a pot of 7.5 BB. So we can still cbet 4 BB as a bluff on occasion. And since we IP we can also take free cards.

      Postflop: As played just raise the turn there and try to get it in. We are giving him a cheap way to see a river and he may get away from paying us enough.
